Last week, I submitted my UCAS application and got sent a from to fill in from UWE. Its titled 'optometry assessment' and its basically a replacement interview. Its timed to half an hour and each question is timed. I cant find much on it online and was wondering if anyone else has to do it/has done it and can give me any tips on how to prepare/what was on it. Many Thanks

Was fairly straight forward. Had to say what qualities I thought an optician should have, what professions I'd be working with, and a situation where to had to pick a best fit response.

Was it a written assesment or was it an assesment over the phone

Hey! The one for our year was a bit different...we have to record ourselves doing a video to post on YouTube (post it as unlisted so only they can view it with the given link) and you answer the questions which you can find on their instructions bit before you actually start the assessment. You do this first then some short little questions, the first one was just listing skills required by an optometrist and the rest were multiple choice. This bit is timed. Hope this helped! pm me if you have any other questions

Yeah you get to see the questions before you do the video which should be 2-3 minutes long. There’s a lil instructions doc on the bit after you login with your welcome ID

If you login to their page using your welcome ID they have instructions about the video and the questions. There were 4 which were just basic ones like why optom and why do you think you’d make a good optometrist. Check the doc they attached on the instructions bit. Pm me if you can’t find it or need help or whatever
